This comes to a total of more than $7.3 million raised cycle to date from more than 83,000 individual contributions according to the Spanberger campaign.
The Spanberger campaign says that they have raised more from Virginians than Freitas has in total, having raised more from Virginians ($3 million) than Delegate Freitas has raised overall ($2.8 million).
From earlier: Nick Freitas breaks VA GOP fundraising record
The Freitas campaign raised $1.8 million in the third quarter of this year. Here is the story from The Hill that I referenced in the newsletter this morning.
“Republican House candidate Nick Freitas reported raising a record-breaking $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2020 in his race against incumbent Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), according to figures exclusively obtained by The Hill.
The third-quarter fundraising haul far surpasses his second-quarter total of $405,000. Freitas’s campaign has yet to officially release its cash-on-hand total but estimates it will be around $700,000.
Additionally, Freitas’s latest fundraising surpassed the previous Virginia House GOP single-quarter fundraising record of $1.5 million, which was set by former Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.) in the third quarter of 2010.
Spanberger has not yet released her third-quarter fundraising figures but so far has outraised Freitas, raking in $4.86 million this cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Spanberger has a cash-on-hand total of total of $4.08 million.”
